OL: Peter Bosz places L’Equipe at the level of Bild and the Sun

Holder at the start of the season with Olympique Lyonnais, the Brazilian Marcelo was quickly put in the closet, before joining Bordeaux during the winter transfer window. Was the 34-year-old central defender fired because of his flatulence? Peter Bosz, the coach of Les Gones, cries conspiracy and knocks out L’Equipe.

The information published by our colleagues at The Team at the beginning of the week have in any case caused a lot of reaction? According to them, Marcelo, the OL defender, was sidelined last August in Angers for having laughed at his own flatulence in the locker room, synonymous above all with mockery and a lack of seriousness in these difficult times. A fun part that would not have pleased Juninho, sports director at the time. The former Besiktas player had never again donned the Lyon jersey in the first team, until his departure for the Girondins de Bordeaux last winter. Brought to speak on the subject, Peter Bosz, the coach of the current eighth in Ligue 1, wanted to deliver his version of the facts. It’s clear.

Bosz formally denies the flatulence story

This Thursday, at a press conference to discuss the reception of Nantes in Ligue 1, the last of the season at Groupama Stadium, Bosz said he was very surprised by what had come out in the press. “When I was in Germany, we had Bild. In England, we had The Sun. Here we have L’Équipe. I was surprised on Monday when I saw in the newspapers why Marcelo was fired. I read that and I said ‘but what is it?’ What is this bullshit? Do we fire a player for this reason… If I do this every time, I end the season without players! He didn’t do that, it’s absolutely not that. I was there in the locker room. I didn’t understand everything, it was at the start of the season. But farting, that I understand, and that’s not it, that’s bullshit “, Firmly explained the former Ajax Amsterdam technician. Info or intox, the fact remains that this trip to Angers will have been Marcelo’s last under the Lyon tunic. Before going to reinforce, as we said, the very permeable Bordeaux defense and its 89 goals conceded this season.
